  • Putting things in perspective

    I don’t remember the media whipping people into a panic during the swine flu.

    Mortality rate of the swine flu was 0.02% with a total of 12,500 deaths.
    Mortality rate of Covid-19 is over 2.0% with 10,415 deaths already and still rapidly advancing.

      Actually, https://www.nationalreview.com/corne...rcent/#slide-1

      The testing is just starting on a larger scale, and at this point it’s difficult to get actual percentages.

        the difference between the flu epidemic during the obama administration, and the covid epidemic currently hitting us is that trump is president, and the media for the most part hates trump with a passion, so naturally they are going t blow things out of proportion as much as they can because they want to get biden into office.

          Well, there is that, of course!

          Ya know, I read several articles about misinformation and disinformation fromWHO concerning this virus. Then my brother reminded me about how closely connected Chelsea Cleanerton and the Cleanerton foundation are to that World Health Organization!
